Timeform pick out bets from Southwell and Catterick on Tuesday.

"He's been eased in the weights/grade since, and now drops back in trip, which should suit..."

Katy Royal - 13:50 Catterick

Katy Royal would probably have won at Newcastle last time with a more positive ride (rider subsequently picked up a ban) and is very interesting now upped in trip for her handicap debut. Lough Salt ought to remain competitive from a 3 lb higher mark, while West of The Edge is likely to go well again with a recent run under his belt.

Tricky Dicky - 14:00 Southwell

Though he is effective at other tracks, both of Tricky Dicky's wins in 2017 have come on the fibresand, and he very nearly added a third success when second to the re-opposing Mujassam over C&D 15 days ago. Now 3 lb better off with that rival, Olly Williams' charge is taken to reverse the placings and emerge on top this time. Letmestopyouthere wasn't disgraced in a Lingfield claimer last time and looks dangerous off a workable mark. Captain Lars also merits respect.

Best Tamayuz - 15:00 Southwell

While Best Tamayuz hasn't won for a while he is a three-time winner at this track, and after an encouraging return from a year off when third here last week he could be the one to be with from a workable mark. He's been eased in the weights/grade since, and now drops back in trip, which should suit. Unnoticed rates the main danger but only marginally as Ticks The Boxes and Fortinbrass are also accorded plenty of respect.
